More about the house and a Giveaway


I was sent some old photos of the inside of the house..taken in 1922....there was a well in the kitchen area which is in the older area of the house...the quality of the photos are not good but you do get an idea of how people used to live...getting your water this way was an improvement from having to go outside, I guess.....they used an old quilt as a splash guard...it must have brought some color into the kitchen and was practical...


every bedroom had its own fireplace..no central heating in those days.....note the wallpaper and the latches on the door...thought this was interesting....there is a braided rug in front of the fireplace too...

To me it seems to have been a comfortable home, but maybe rather cold and drafty in the winter....we can sure appreciate our modern appliances, can't we? give me central heating and running water anytime!

I wanted to mention a nice giveaway that is going on.....it ends on Feb. 19th and here is the link
at Where the Rooster Crows...Holli is giving away some very generous goodies..including 7 round herb boxes. a pin keep, and more....
